Advancing CBDCs and a virtual asset regime: Perspectives from Hong Kong (In-person)
In June 2023 Hong Kong rolled out its new crypto regime paving the way to become a worldwide hub for digital asset trading. At the same time the HKMA launched its retail CBDC programme while also advancing its multi CBDC Project mBridge with the central banks of China, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates, as well as Bank for International Settlements Innovation Hub. To delve into these initiatives, OMFIF’s Digital Monetary Institute is convening a high-level roundtable in Hong Kong, with Benedicte Nolens, Head of the BIS Innovation Hub Hong Kong Centre, and Yvonne Tsui, Senior Fintech Director at the HKMA.
The roundtable will bring together 25-30 senior leaders from central banks, financial services firms, payment providers and technology companies to discuss Project mBridge, the proposed e-HKD and implications of the new virtual asset regime. Participants will share perspectives on the opportunities and challenges involved in enabling CBDC interlinkages, both in the Hong Kong-Mainland corridor and more broadly.
